hidden_jedi: (Kale Sideways)
[personal profile] hidden_jedi
Being stuck in the house for so long, Kale had learned the quiet rhythms of the house. The sounds of the washing machine and dishwasher, Vina running around trying to destroy everything in sight or dragging around her washcloth. The beeps of the few droids they had around and music when he felt like playing it. He had taken to fixing and improving parts of the house when he was alone just to keep himself busy.

On one such day, when Kale had been refinishing the table that Vina had decided to use as a scratching post, Kale heard a noise in the work room. At first he didn't think too much about it, figuring it was Trever, but then he realized that Trever wasn't there, but still at the Delvar compound. And it wasn't Tobias either.

Pulling out his blaster, he crept to the work room, listening to the sounds. Someone rifled around through the parts, tossing things aside with a clatter. Counting to three, Kale stepped into the door way, pointing his blaster at the intruder.

Then nearly dropped it. Fortunately he managed to recover quickly enough that he didn't lose any momentum. "Zhin-Ja? What the fuck are you doing here?"

"None of your business, thief."

"I'd like to point out that I'm not the one riffling through things that aren't mine." He gestured with his blaster. "Move away from there and keep your hands where I can see them."

Zhin-Ja snorted, "You actually think that'll stop me, you freak?"

Kale fired off a warning shot just Zhin-Ja's toes, causing him to jump. "I said move!"

Slowly Zhin-Ja moved.

"Good boy," Kale said mockingly.

He growled. "You aren't going to do anything to me."

"Why's that?"

"Cause, you're Jedi."

Giving a bark of laughter, Kale flicked his blaster to stun and shot him twice sending Zhin-Ja to the ground. "No. I'm not Jedi." Giving the fallen man a kick, Kale set about tying him up, wondering what he should do with his captive.

Revan's been casting his senses out everyday since Zhin-Ja escaped into the Nexus, trying to locate the little bastard. It's always ended up as just giving him a headache, but today... Today he catches a whiff of that presence and he sets off after the scent like a maalraas after prey.

The armor's slipped on and he's off on his swoop, neural disruption collar in hand, before he even realizes it. He doesn't even think of his destination until he arrives, though doesn't seem particularly put-out by it. He will break down the door and fight every Delvar in the Nexus if that's what it takes, he is dragging Zhin-Ja out of here to pay for what he's done.

But he'll try knocking on the door first. He's a Dark Lord of the Sith, not rude.

Figuring that Zhin-Ja wasn't going anywhere knocked out like that with Vina sitting on his face, Kale goes to answer the door, blaster still in hand. He gives Revan a sort of stupefied look, had with the blaster in it raising to scratch his head.

Revan isn't particularly fond of holes in the Force, but that's really very secondary to him right now. "Kale Delvar," he says, taking on his most formal General tone to show that I Am Here On Business. "You have something that I need. I even brought it a present." His hand twitches to indicate the disruptor collar.

"Why do you want to collar the cat?" He holsters the pistol, knowing that really if it came down to a fight he'd be squished.

From: [identity profile] prodigalsith.livejournal.com
Revan pauses to throw a glance behind Kale (or something like that; masks are fun like that). "Actually I want to collar the thing your cat is sitting on and drag it home for it's final judgement." Which will undoubtably be messy and painful.

From: [identity profile] hidden-jedi.livejournal.com
Kale glances over at Vina who is licking her butt, still on Zhin-Ja's face. A matter of sheer acrobatic feats that is.

"Define final judgment, cause you know, I can't turn him over to you in good conscious if I don't like what you're going to do to him."

Revan's impressed by Vina's dexterity!

"Me? I am just going to take him home and let my alternate, his boyfriend, and Akay decide his fate. What they do is out of my hands."

From: [identity profile] hidden-jedi.livejournal.com
"Didn't they already do that?" Nothing in his tone indicates that he's condemning what Revan is suggesting or prevent what he wants to do. More like it's general curiosity.

Having fully cleansed herself on Zhin-Ja, Vina wanders over and jumps up onto Kale's shoulder, staring at Revan with that way that cats do.

"Akay? Hardly. As a parting gift Zhin-Ja just about killed him and Akay wants to pay him back for every scar he has now. That reminds me, maybe I should call Aryn as well... As to your question, Danny was not done with him the first time and Dann would want to pay Zhinny-boy back for Akay even if not himself."

Revan looks right back at Vina. "You remind me of Juhani."

Kale looks puzzled for a moment, and then shrugs it off. Last time he checked Akay wasn't into that whole romance thing. And Aryn bugged him as much as Revan got bugged by holes in the Force.

"Doesn't sound like he'll get out of the encounter alive," he says idly.

Meowing, Vina hops onto Revan's head and peers upside down at his face.

From: [identity profile] prodigalsith.livejournal.com
Akay isn't into 'the romance thing' since he's long been incapable of it, but it hardly changes his adoration of Revan and his family. Or that Aryn wasn't particularly happy to see black and red electrical burns all over his sex buddy.

"He very well may not," Revan comments. "But he worked for the Sith and such penalties are common. He should expect it."

Revan peers back at her through his visor. "Cute."

From: [identity profile] hidden-jedi.livejournal.com
Good point.

"He only worked for Nihlius, as far as I know," he said. "But, really, I don't have much use for him and he is an idiot. Though I suppose I shouldn't mention this to Tobias."

There is batting of the nose area.

Date: 2008-04-10 11:51 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] prodigalsith.livejournal.com
Revan doesn't seem phased by the batting, but does levitate Vina off so he can reach down and lock the neural disruptor around Zhin's neck.

"A Sith is a Sith, according to the Jedi," he says with a shrug. "Mention it if you like, just remind him who Zhin had worked for and that could have killed Dann if you do."

Obviously this required climbing up the back!

He looks down at the unconscious Zhin and doesn't mention 'and could have done worse to me too, you know'. "He probably already knows something is up anyway."

"I would not be surprised by that at all; he is very attuned to such things." He straightens up and scratches Vina idlly behind the ears. "Are you willing to release Zhin-Ja to my keeping?" Because Revan seriously isn't leaving without him.

From: [identity profile] hidden-jedi.livejournal.com
She likes that and purrs happily.

Kale thinks about for a moment and then shrugs. "Have at it. Or him," he said. He knew that Revan wasn't leaving without him, but honestly, he didn't care at this point.

Date: 2008-04-11 04:48 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] prodigalsith.livejournal.com
Revan hoists Zhin onto his shoulder at that point. "A pleasure doing business with you, Mr. Delvar," he says, and turns to go.

Date: 2008-04-11 05:01 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hidden-jedi.livejournal.com
"Have a nice day," he said, picking up Vina before she could dart after Revan. When he left, Kale shut the door and went to clean up the mess that Zhin-Ja made.

Date: 2008-04-11 12:58 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] prodigalsith.livejournal.com
Revan lashes Zhin-Ja onto the back of the swoop and takes off for home (careful to avoid obstacles; he doesn't want him getting decapitated before they get home, after all).

Date: 2008-04-11 06:30 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hidden-jedi.livejournal.com
Picking up the tools and parts and nabbing them from Vina, Kale tried to think of what he'd say to Tobias... if he asked.

Tobias eventually makes it home, leaned on his cane. He checks around the house for Kale before heading for the workshop.

"Mess?" That one's new on him.

Date: 2008-04-12 05:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hidden-jedi.livejournal.com
Kale grunts. "We got broken into." He picks up the piece of metal that used to be a joint and now was completely twisted.

Vina trotted up to Tobias with a screwdriver in her mouth looking smug.

Date: 2008-04-12 06:19 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] force-killer.livejournal.com
Tobias looks slightly alarmed. "Broken into? By who? You're okay?" He just means in this instance.

He slowly lowers onto one knee. "Hello Vina. What's that you've got there?" He holds out his hand.

Date: 2008-04-12 06:27 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hidden-jedi.livejournal.com
Because in general Kale doesn't really hit okay. "I'm fine. I stunned him." He glares at another ruined part and tossed it onto the rubbish pile.

Carefully, Vina drops the fine screwdriver into Tobias' hand and then merows at him looking for approval.

Date: 2008-04-12 06:32 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] force-killer.livejournal.com
"Where is he? Don't tell me you found a Krayt dragon to feed him to."

He takes the screwdriver and scritches Vina behind the ears. "Good girl."

Date: 2008-04-12 06:50 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hidden-jedi.livejournal.com
"Hah. No." He leans against a workbench. "Revan took him away. It was Zhin-Ja."

Happy purry kitty! She did good!

Date: 2008-04-12 12:37 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] force-killer.livejournal.com
He gets a look on his face very akin to oO "Zhin-Ja? What was he doing in here?"
Thought it would explain the echo of Revan's passage that he felt...

Date: 2008-04-12 06:28 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hidden-jedi.livejournal.com
Another part gets tossed onto the rubbish pile. "I think he was trying to get lightsaber parts. Or just being a rat bastard," He grumbles. "But I think the former."

Vina, who has learned very quickly which of Tobias' legs was the bad one, scrambles up the good one for a good look around.

Date: 2008-04-13 05:36 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] force-killer.livejournal.com
Oh, of course she uses the leg where the nerve endings still function just fine. Cats; oy.

"At least he didn't get any of them. Maybe we ought to beef up the security in here; lightsaber parts can be awfully pricey, if you know where to sell. Small, easy to carry..."

Date: 2008-04-13 05:50 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] hidden-jedi.livejournal.com
Cats! Knowing exactly where you don't want them to go for hundreds of thousands of years and going straight there.

"Not that I can tell... of course he's made such a mess that I can't tell yet if anything is missing or not." He looks at another part and grunts. "Might be a good idea."
